The advent of globalisation and decreasing government labour market involvement within the Western World has wreaked havoc with the concept of what was thought of as traditional employment. As work becomes increasingly casual, part-time and temporary, an increasingly dynamic and fluid workforce is created and these features provide an increasingly complex Human Resource Management (HRM) challenge for organisations. This paper investigates some of these challenges within the professional contractor workforce, a working relationship that encapsulates many of the key features of the moves away from the traditional and ongoing employer/employee relationship. Implications for the individual contractor, the employing organisation and organisational HRM strategies are discussed.
